Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

A restorative dentist in North Carolina can provide beautiful dental crowns and bridges

Restoration options for patients have come a long way in modern dentistry. In the beginning, patients were often left to manage a dental problem, until the pain got bad enough that the tooth required extraction. Restorations such as dentures were crude and did not provide effective function or aesthetics.

Modern technology and science have allowed the development of some amazing restoration options. Patients are no longer faced with dismal choices when it comes to restoring health and beauty to their smiles. Dr. Virtue and his team at Virtue Dental Care offer many of these options, including dental bridges and crowns to keep your smile working well and looking beautiful.

What are dental crowns and bridges?

Have you ever heard someone say that they were going to get a cap put on their tooth? Dental crowns, commonly referred to as caps, cover the visible area of the tooth. They are typically made of porcelain, a hard ceramic material that looks like natural tooth enamel and is durable enough to withstand biting and chewing. Crowns can be placed on teeth that have been damaged by large cavities or breakage and can be used as support for dental bridges to replace missing teeth.

Dental bridges fill in the gap of missing teeth. They are anchored by crowns that are cemented over teeth adjacent to the gap. An artificial tooth, called a pontic, sits in the middle of the bridge, completing the smile. Unlike dental implants, dental bridges are not integrated into the jawbone, but with the right care, they can be a long lasting option for patients who wish to restore missing teeth.

Caring for crowns and bridges

No matter what type of restoration a patient chooses, one thing remains constant. This dental treatment is an investment in the improved functionality, health, and appearance of the smile, which is why taking proper care of it is important.

Crowns and bridges require little extra care above standard oral hygiene. Patients are encouraged to brush and floss regularly, use antibacterial, fluoride-free, mouthwash, and maintain regular dental visits to monitor any potential signs of plaque and tartar buildup.
